21 Scientists Genius Behind Google DeepMind

The success of Google’s artificial intelligence, AlphaGo, developed DeepMind division, won the match against the board game Go Go world champion, Lee Sedol, so the world’s attention.

Many people wonder, anyone scientists working behind the artificial intelligence. Information from the pages of Business Insider, Google DeepMind itself is a division which has a membership of 200 people.

However, anyone working on it still remains a mystery, but three co-founder who was already known.

Business Insider said, the possibility of Google did not disclose it because it did not want to risk getting will lose their best staff. Google avoids the nicest people that moved to a competitor that also focuses on developing artificial intelligence such as Facebook.

Best talented people is likely to become one of the reasons the company is headquartered in Mountain View was to disburse US $ 446 million to DeepMind January.

DeepMind itself was founded in 2010. The company that was established and headquartered in London that is focused on handling research. In addition, the experts who worked on it are always published papers on artificial intelligence since the beginning of the company was established.

A page on the website also showed their DeepMind academic papers, in which the various works of the scientists who allegedly worked for DeepMind.

Business Insider explore a number of names were allegedly working to develop artificial intelligence for DeepMind. Unfortunately, Google does not provide a direct statement of the truth.
